Humor • 1 hr. • Audio Program • ©

Tune the radio of your mind to a frequency you never knew came in . . . until now. The Firesign Theatre members treat listeners to their signature humor on the outer edges of the unconscious. The theme is radio; current events are distilled to their symbolic truths and offered up as news stories and commercial segments on the fictitious "Radio Now." In this manic world, there is international obsession over the death of a "goddess-princess" who is kept alive by turning her into a talking doll--an obsession exemplified by a critically panned film about her life, "Pull My String." Hysteria over the approaching millennium is also represented in the style of psychological humor that has made this four-man troupe a cult favorite for over two decades. Audiences will thrill at the fast pace and flawless audio quality of the production. All performers are committed to even the smallest roles, and sound effects are perfectly placed and realistic. Firesign Theatre proves yet again that the best comedy is smart comedy. R.A.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 99]
